Configuring Bitium Active Directory Agent
Bitium’s new on-premise Directory Agent allows organizations to connect with existing directory infrastructure such as Active Directory (AD), OpenLDAP, or other vendor directory systems that support Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
The agent offers several benefits including:
- Easy Directory Sync integration for users and groups.
- Use of SAML protocol to connect and authenticate users.
- Agent can be installed on the AD server or any other Windows or Linux System.
In the Administration section, Click “Directories” and choose AD or LDAP as your option.
On the next page, click the “View Download Page” button.
On the next page, choose the operating system you are installing the Bitium Directory Agent to. Click “Download”.
On the next page, your download will begin. If it does not download to your machine, click “restart the download”.
With the file downloaded, it is time to get the agent running. Open up the exe file in your Downloads folder and double click it.
Proceed with the Setup Wizard till you get to the Finish page. Click “Finish”. The Directory Agent is now running in the background on your machine (as it should). On the next step we will authorize it to work with your Bitium account.
On the same computer where the agent is running, open a web browser and visit http://localhost:8090 to see the “Welcome to Bitium Agent” screen. Enter your email address on Bitium, and click “Next”.
On the next page, choose your organization from the available options and click “Submit”.
After clicking “Submit”, you will be redirected to a page asking you to authorize the agent to your Bitium account. Click “Approve”.
If all went well, you will receive a message saying “Agent Authorized”. If you do not see this please contact email@example.com, and we will get you fixed up.
Here onwards follow the steps under “To Connect Over the Web” to complete the flow.
